Two runners-up will win a new commuter bikeâ€”a Breezer Uptown 8 or a Dahon folding commuter. First, second, and third place winners in each of the seven categories will receive prizes including Rickshaw bags, Planet Bike gear, and CLIF Bars. Winning photos will be published in the 2010 March/April issue of Momentum magazine. Just for entering, you can receive a trial subscription to Momentum and Bicycle Times magazines.
The contest, which runs from September 1st â€“ December 11th 2009, is seeking high quality and creative photos of biking and walking. Individuals can submit up to 20 photos in 7 categories. Public voting on all photos submitted to the contest will take place from November 1st â€“ December 31st, 2009. The finalists (the top 10 photos from each category) will go to a panel of expert judges who will determine the contest winners.
Photos submitted will benefit the Allianceâ€™s new Biking and Walking Advocacy Photo Library, a resource that will provide free high quality images of biking and walking to grassroots bicycle and pedestrian advocacy organizations.
